Lawyers, I really believe them :rip:

Such bastions of honesty and moral fortitude.

It's been over 17 months since I was last 100% sober, not a day I want to repeat.

When Tariq Aziz.

Hmmm....

This is the trouble with Iraqi politicians.

You don't know whether to take this with a pinch of salt or not.

The same lawyer said one of those two women "Dr Germ or Mrs Anthrax" whatever was "dying", plus let us not forget Barzan Al-Tikriti "has cancer" yet seems remarkably active, Izzat Ibrahim Al-Douri is doing remarkably well for a "dead" man (so too Chemical Ali) & I distinctly remember Saddam Hussein being "close to death" in 2000.

One other report says Aziz is suffering from no worse than toothache - quite different to a "brain stroke"

This from a government who had "comical ali" as their official spokeman.


I'll believe it when I see it, to be honest - the American quote on Aziz seems far more realistic. Can't afford to choose a DDP pick on a lawyer's hysteria, a la Ronnie Biggs :rip:

Oh this is sad. :D I had a crush on Michael Yuhanna for quite a while and was jealous that he got to share meals with Saddam.......do you think Saddam knew Michael wasn't Tariq at the start of life?



Did you know that he survived an asasination attempt back some 25 years or more ago?





Hopefully he will pull through and continue a long and helthier life.

There's no doubt now, 2006 is clearly the year of the celebrity stroke...Maybe Gary Glitter's defence team will be using this indisputable fact in court :D

Celebrity Stroke!

Is that a euphemism for what Gary was doing with those young Vietnamese girls?

I'd rather watch Celebrity Stroke over Celebrity Big Brother any day of the week!

Marvellous viewing potential there, I think!

ISTM Celebrity Ebola has more appeal in these hurried times, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that someone picks up the idea. Mebby we should copyright it.

I'd rather see Celebrity Lobotomy. Each week, we'll take one washed up B-list celebrity desparate for a little exposure and cash and lobotomize them, literally turning that celeb into the drooling idiot we always knew they were on the inside.

Since lobotomies aren't performed in the US anymore...can't do it here. I think Canada still does lobotomies though.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

a handful sometime down the rhode.

Iraq's Aziz seeking medical care in Moscow

It looks like he is trying to imitate Milosevic in requesting medical treatment in Russia. Especially after his request for asuylm to Croatia was denied.

Do all these cronies for Sadaam pass the fame test? I mean, I suppose they'd pass the UK obituary test, but they all seem like bottom-of-the-barrel candidates to me. Certainly looks like a good choice for the DDP though...

Aziz is very well known. "Chemical Ali", "Comical Ali", "Queen Germ", "Mrs Anthrax", Izzat "ginge" Ibrahim, Barzan "Raving Nutter" Al-Tikriti & Tassin "I haven't got a nickname" Ramadan, are all relatively well known.
Otherwise, it's hit & miss. But all of those in the Saddam trial now would get a mention, simply just because...
